Office of Disciplinary Counsel


Ethics Hotline for Lawyers


ODC will provide informal, non-binding guidance to a lawyer regarding compliance with the Rules. A request for guidance should relate to a lawyer’s contemplated, prospective conduct. ODC guidance will not be in the form of legal advice, and the guidance discussions should not be construed as creating an attorney-client relationship. Although any guidance provided by ODC will be confidential, a lawyer may waive such confidentiality in any subsequent, related disciplinary matter in which that lawyer is a disciplinary respondent.

To reach the Ethics Hotline, please call the ODC at 302-651-3931 and advise the receptionist you are making a hotline call. You also have the option of emailing the Ethics Hotline at ARMS_ODC_EHOTLINE@delaware.gov.
